Miscanthus sinensis ‘Malepartus’
at Digging Dog

Miscanthus

If Pygmalion were a gardener, Miscanthus would come to life as fountains, some of them spouting tall and upright to 10 ft. Graceful and robust, they’re favored for their lush foliage and silky terminal panicles. Striking as a single specimen, Miscanthus is also excellent when massed in the perennial bed or a mixed border. Attractive year-round, with fall colors of yellow, purple, scarlet and burgundy, they fade to a lovely warm ivory in winter.

Esteemed German plantsman Ernest Pagels had a trained eye for making stellar grass selections, and this colorful cultivar is no exception. Hoisted on thick wine-tinged stems, large, abundant crimped plumes appear early, showing off lustrous coppery purple hues, which eventually lighten to silver. The vigorous rounded clump of broad and lax rich green blades with ash-striped midribs can pose as a picturesque specimen in a mixed border, where its bronze, red and orange fall hues will surely draw attention.

Blooms September – November.

Size: 5'–7' high x 3'–4' wide; hardy to zone 5.
